If I ruled the world, I would make start mandatory parenting classes, and the first thing I would teach is that it is most important to tell children the truth about their abilities, good or bad.

Propping someone up when they don't deserve it is as bad--or worse, arguably-- as telling someone they are stupid when they are not.

what if they have potential but it needs to be nourished?

I would make it illegal to disrespect people.
In my world, where kids were told the truth, people wouldn't disrespect each other, since they would understand where they stand relative to each other.

In my world, you see, truth wouldn't hurt, since it would merely be the truth, and not some house of cards purporting to be the truth.

The distinction needs to be made between nourishing potential, and feeding someone shit.

The end result (unhindered growth) is the same only if you are a mushroom; otherwise, you just end up being full of shit.

I think the real issue here isnt so much that parents are lying to their kids, its that parents are lying to themselves.
(this is a generalization but) parents dont look at their kids and think "idiot", "uncoordinated", "socially inept", "psychopath" they look at their kids and see potential and ability and all this other projected bullshit.
once people stop lying to themselves, they would probably stop lying to their kids too.

yep...

support something that they like to do, and do well. support the hell out of it. don't force them to play piano in hopes that they'll turn out to be the next Chopin, doubly so if they loathe playing the piano.

it just makes sense.
